Jan-Paul Schop from Arch-Vision (Netherlands) will give in his marketoverview information around this topic at the European Coatings Conference "Sustainable Coatings” on 18th and 19thJune 2013 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

"The attitude towards sustainable materials across Europe”

"The architect plays a major role in the construction industry. This is why Arch-Vision focuses on this group, to obtain valuable information about future building volumes and trends in general.
In short, the European architectural barometer is a multi-client, quarterly research (started Q1 2009) with two main objectives. The first objective is to follow cyclical development to predict future construction volumes. The other objective is to follow trends in general (sustainability, BIM, Design and technology trends, DMU and decision criteria, etc.). The study is conducted in eight countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Poland, Belgium and the Netherlands) and every quarter 1.600 successful interviews with architects are conducted.
During his presentation, Mr. Schop will provide an insight on the view of architects with regards to sustainability.
The following important topics will be discussed:

  • The importance of different aspects for architects,
  • the willingness of principals to pay extra for sustainable solutions,
  • the moment when sustainability is taken into account and the share of projects it is taken into account.
  • The degree to which the different industries, materials and brands are seen as sustainable.
  • The aspects that define sustainability according to architects.
  • Which sustainability certificates are most important / most valued among architects?
  • Statements covering different aspects of sustainability.”
Nutshells, performance issues and life cycle assessments as well on the conference

International speakers are expected, giving talks about pertinent topics such as life cycle assessment and costing for measuring sustainability of coatings, biorenewable cashew nutshell liquid based products for high performance coatings or waterborne and solventborne coatings with sustainability for the future.
